"FRAME" --- PORTAL AND GABLE RIGID PLANE FRAME ANALYSIS

Program Description:

"FRAME" is a spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of plane frame analysis of por
rigid plane frames subjected to various types of loading. Specifically, the "stiffness matrix" method o
used to determine the unknown joint displacements, support reactions, and member end forces. Ind
members are also analyzed to determine the shears and intermediate moments. Plots of both the sh
moment diagrams are also produced. Also, the frame is drawn for visual confimation of geometry/co
Note: this is a metric units version, converted from the original "FRAME.xls" spreadsheet workbook.
This program is a workbook consisting of three (3) worksheets, described as follows:

Program Assumptions and Limitations:

1. This program uses the "stiffness matrix" method of analysis and four (4) following basic analysis a
a. Members must be of constant cross section (E and I are constant for entire length).
b. Deflections must not significantly alter the geometry of the problem.
c. Stress must remain within the "elastic" region.
d. Since this analysis is "first-order", the effects of "P-D", "P-d", and shear deformation are not
(See below for the iterative, manual procedure to approximate the P-D effects in columns of
(Significant effects due to shear deformation are limited to very short and deep members.)
2. Additional assumptions and features are as follows:
a. Frame support joints may each be either fixed or pinned.
b. Frame support joints may be at different levels (elevations).
c. Columns must be vertical (cannot be sloped).
c. For a portal frame, the top (roof) member may be flat or sloped in either direction.
3. A vertical load, horizontal load, and externally moment may be applied to any of the joints of the
joint loads are to be applied in "global" axes directions. Note: Joint loads applied directly at suppo

4. On any individual member, this program will handle up to five (5) full uniform, partial uniform, tri
trapezoidal loads, up to ten (10) point loads, and up to four (4) externally applied moments. For v
distributed loads and point loads are input in a "X-Global" sence of direction. For flat or sloped to

Procedure for Stiffness Method of Frame Analysis:

1. Identifiy members and joints in frame


2. Specify near (start) joint and far (end) joint for each member in frame
3. Establish global coordinate system
4. Calculate fixed-end moments (FEM's) and shears for each member due to applied membe
5. Specify x, y, and z coding components (3 in all) at each joint as follows:
a. Use lowest numbers to identify unknown joint displacements (for partioning overall ma
b. Use remaining numbers to indentify known displacements
6. From the problem, establish the known displacements, Dk, and known external forces and
7. Determine 6x6 stiffness matrix, k', for each of the member expressed in global coordinate
As an example, a member numbered with 1,2, and 3 at start and 4,5, and 6 at end wou

where: A = A*E/L*lx^2+12*E*I/L^3*ly^2 Note: lx and ly are the "direction cosine
B = (A*E/L-12*E*I/L^3)*lx*ly lx = (xj-xi)/L and ly = (yj-yi)/L
C = 6*E*I/L^2*ly (xi,yi) = joint start coordinates
D = A*E/L*ly^2+12*E*I/L^3*lx^2 (xj,yj) = joint end coordinates
E = 6*E*I/L^2*lx L = SQRT((xj-xi)^2+(yj-yi)^2)
F = 4*E*I/L

8. Merge individual member stiffness matrices into stiffness matrix, K, for entire frame
9. Partition the structure stiffness matrix, K, as follows:
End Forces Vector Partitioned Stiff. Matrix, K Displacements Vector
Qk = K11 K12 * Du
Qu K21 K22 Dk
Expansion tQk = K11 * Du + K12 * Dk (Eqn. 1)
Qu = K21 * Du + K22 * Dk (Eqn. 2)
where: Qk and Dk = known external loads and displacements (
Qu and Du = unknown support reactions and displacem
K11, K12, K21, K22 = submatrices of partitioned stiffne
10. Solve for unknown displacements, Du, from Equation 1:
Du = (Qk - K12 * Dk) / K11 = Qk / K11
11. With the solved displacements, solve for unknown support reactions, Qu, from Equation 2
Qu = K21 * Du + K22 * Dk = K21 * Du
12. Solve for internal member end forces from: q = k' * T * D
where: T = 6x6 displacement transformation matrix as follows for each member:
lx ly 0 0 0 0
-ly lx 0 0 0 0
0 0 1 0 0 0
0 0 0 lx ly 0
0 0 0 -ly lx 0
0 0 0 0 0 1
and k' is the member stiffness matrix (from above), and D is the displacements vector

P-D Analysis Procedure:

Individual Member (Column) Entire Frame

The effect of P-D produces a secondary (second order) moment in a member which is equal to the ax
force in the member times the frame displacement of the member. This is commonly referred to as P
Long, slender columns of a frame are typically the frame members most sensitive to the effects of P-

Determining secondary shears:


Setting the P-D secondary moment equal to the moment (couple) due to secondary shears applied at
ends of the column, produces the following expression:
P*D=V*L

Then, solving for the secondary shears, V, results in the following:


V=P*D/L

The steps to account for the effects of P-D in the columns of a frame are as follows:
1. Solve the problem for the original applied loads.
2. Calculate the secondary shears for each column.
3. Add (superimpose) the secondary shears to the original loads and re-calculate the results.
4. Compare the new displacements of the latest results to the results obtained from the previous calc
5. If the new displacements vary only very small amount (convergence tolerance) from the previous d
then the solution has converged.
6. If not, then return to Step 2, repeating (iterating) the process as required.

Notes: 1. Compression in a column will result in P-D tending to de-stabilize the column by increas
moment, while tension in a column will result in P-D tending to stabilize (straighten) the
reducing the moment. (See illustration above at right.)
2. P-D effects can be reduced and controlled by using heavier members and/or a stiffer fra
3. P-d refers to the effects of the axial load in a member subject to deflection (curvature)
